Years 1-3: Aboriginal Art and Play

Level 1

Children from all cultures around the world can have fun and learn by playing games.

Early Years Teachers can choose from three programs. In these programs students learn about the valuable skills gained by Aboriginal children and adults when playing with traditional toys and games. They also develop an appreciation and understanding of the different styles and forms of Aboriginal art from different regions, and the relationship between Dreaming stories, ceremonies and the environment.
